That was really cute and amusing episode to watch. I guess this is a slice-of-life/haremish anime of our mini-mecha-musume. They did just a bunch of random stuff throughout the episode. The derpy hamster out of nowhere was interesting...what the hell is it doing there? Awesome character though.
The battles were nice though and I do hope we more of them in the future.
Will the new girl cause our current heroines trouble next week?

Well, good battles (as expected of 8bit) and a whole lot of not much in particular.
NEXT TIME: FUCK YEAH STRARF

That was pretty fun. The battles were quite nice. The CG works pretty well, and the battles are quite nice to watch.
The girls are fairly fun too. Looking forward to meeting the new one next time.
And the hamster's random appearances amused me.

-Thank you intro narration for informing me that this is basically just Medabots.
-So tiny Gundam fights are constantly going on all over Japan. I wonder how insurance covers the damage created by itty bitty bullets.
-How the fuck does a 6 inch tall robot cut a building in half? How!?
-Okay so it was all digital. Still crazy. Who would put a small nuclear reactor core in a mini robot?
-Why do cute dog and cat girls only get a split second of screen time in this OP? Are you trying to tell me they aren't the main characters?
-Since when did the Microman toyline go all girly anyway?
-Robo-Yunocchi is so adorably chipper.
-This is making me miss that tiny adorable robot assistant from Chobits.
-HOLY SHIT! Hamuzou got a new job. Good to see ya again little buddy.
-She... she's already covered in a white fluid. DAMN IT JAPANESE IMAGE BOARDS!
-She moved all the boxes on her own... Wonder what the max carry capacity is on a Shinki.
-Robo-Yunocchi & Robo-Miyako living together. *squeeee*
-And they have their own sexy maid.
-I really hope that isn't Master's only toothbrush.
-Carnivorous dinosaur large!
-Tea flavor eyecatch?
-6 inch tall robots experience jealousy. :sd:
-YOu do not want to make Robo-Yunocchi mad. She will end you.
-Hmm they don't have double hinged elbows or knees. Poor little under articulated robot girls.
-NEXT WEEK DOGGIE & KITTY!
Tiny robot girls. Interesting.

The already shoddy 2d animation has taken a nose-dive off a cliff. Master was particularly hilariously off model (though I'm not sure he even has an actual model, its obvious that no one involved gives a single shit about him)
Strarf has a mild existential crisis.
And there is cooking. Disrupted by an attack by two (feral?) Shinki who...live in the wall? It was very confusing.

You know, if I ignore the poorly-designed (visually) and completely bland male lead and the fact that the Shinki are quasi-romantically pandering to him, this is actually a fairly good show. It's about a bunch of miniature robots leading miniature lives, which is a fun concept as it is, plus it's got cool-looking robot battles and virtual environments that can be changed at will. And a gerbil that somehow never fails to amuse me.
Only problem is, well, the poorly-designed (visually) and completely bland male lead and the fact that the Shinki are quasi-romantically pandering to him. Maybe if they had a female owner instead...
Ah well. Still more interesting than I expected it to be.

Yeah, so cooking for people is rather difficult (and potentially very dangerous) when you're only a few inches tall.
Strarf is a decent addition to the cast. Her greeting was amusing and her little scene at the very end was cute.

How does bathing even work for them? They're painted! The episode even established that! Oh whatever.
Anyway, Ach and Yda are great, also they are the increasingly ubiquitous duo of Hocchan and Yukarin. Whats with that anyway?
Also Clara and Strarf strike up a Freindship/Rivalry, while Ann, Ines and Lene continue to be ridiculously laid back about most things.

Well I'm not sure exactly what I was thinking when I decided to try it, but I don't think I'll be watching anymore. I couldn't find much of this episode enjoyable at all. TAN will have the next 2 episodes in the next 2 days, but right now, I doubt those would change my mind. Maybe if I watched the ONA? I don't know; probably not. Oh well, there's plenty this season to keep me busy, so I don't need this added to all that anyway.

This show is just so bizarre.
Needs more Ach and Yda though.

They traveled from Tokyo to Okinawa.
Uhh...and lots of absurdity in general. Next time, DRAMA!?

ARNVAL VS. ARNVAL
Other than the cop-out at the end, that was pretty great episode.
11-18-2012, 08:59 PM
Aww...that was adorable. Yay for Fubuki.
...still kinda weird though.
